These tender soybeans are stewed with gluten chunks, the buttery flavour makes a delightful snack. Another highlight is Deep Fried Oyster Cakes with fresh oysters complemented with sweet emerald green leeks, celery, fish paste and wrapped in handmade bean cur skin that is deep fried till a golden crisp.
PUTIEN “Jian Bao” is a popular Putian street snack from 1920s. Pan fried both sides to a glistening golden brown, it is packed with flavourful sumptuous ingredents and served in their special sauce. My favourite is “Guo Bian Hu” where the rice paste is scrapped into the boiling broth as delicate rice noodles, complemented with vegetables, pork slices, shrimps for a comforting dish.
Not forgetting the Heng Hwa Bee Hoon – a traditional PUTIEN delight made of hand-milled flour to ensure its translucent, fine texture and original flavour. The chef simmers the noodles with eggs in the natural goodness of fresh soy milk. The wholesome dish is then topped with bean sprouts, seaweed and peanuts.

Freshly made sandwiches are the highlight, with a variety of breads lining the chilled display. The sandwiches are divided into 4 big categories – bloomer multi-grain, white and multigrain baguettes, and wholemeal sandwich bread. We dug straight into Chicken Avocado served with fluffy multigrain bread slices along with tender chicken breast, avocado, basil leaves, tomatoes, crispy Romaine & Lolla Rossa lettuce, and English mustard mayonnaise. It looked simple but was made quite a tasty and filling meal.
My dining partner went for Pastrami & Cheese Multigrain Bloomer with Australian mature cheddar cheese, beef pastrami, tomatoes, Romaine & Lolla Rossa lettuce, and English mustard mayonnaise. There are a handful of salads, sweet treats, freshly baked pastries and beverages to choose from too. Food is prepared fresh daily: nothing is kept overnight.
